On a recent visit to Uganda, I visited a training program run by the BRAC Uganda IT Unit for Microfinance Branch Managers. BRAC developed its own MIS system in Bangladesh known as RADAR. A very senior Microsoft company executive visited BRAC Uganda last year and reviewed its MIS system. Based on his evaluation, RADAR was deemed to be an excellent solution for the microfinance program needs.

Country Representative Ariful Islam (seated, far end) and Health Program Manager Habibur Rahman (standing, far corner) dropped in on the training to meet with staff.

and Namatovu Carol (in the blue dress), seen here with Habibur.

Staff being trained in RADAR as part of the branch automation strategy are featured in the photographs: Namugeny Sarah, Lusimbo Jesca, Nakawooya Rachael Vanessa, Nsimenta Sharon, Awori Stellah, Ntongo Rebecca and Akatwijuka Mercy.

Participants thought the training was very practical and effective. They also seemed to having a good time working together. I was also glad to know that Arif, Carol and others there read this blog so let me say thanks for letting me drop in and observe your training!
